Cab & Doors – Body Work

The cab and both doors required a fair amount of body work to get them looking good again. The cab had a large section in the lower back corner that was completely rusted out. We bought a patch panel and took it to a welding shop to let them do the dirty work. The cab also had two holes drilled in the roof – it looked like there were lights mounted up there at one point. The doors also had some striping tacked to them, leaving half a dozen little holes down the side of each one. We really had our work cut out for us here!

    Bryon, I really don’t have any experience in this area, as I’ve kept my truck completely original. Probably the best place to ask would be the forums over at Ford Truck Enthusiasts.
